SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

paramour (noun) lover who a person is not married to.

A person is a paramour of another person if the two persons have an affair without being married. A man's paramour is a woman, who without being his wife, has an affair with him. Similarly a woman's paramour is a man, who, without being her husband enjoys a sexual relationship with him.

  • His paramour embarrassed him when in his wife's presence she invited him home to dinner. The wife rightly suspected an affair between them and was furious.
  • She murdered her paramour out of fear that her rich husband, coming to know it, might divorce her. A rich life was not something she was prepared to give up.
